Basic Shipping rate plus price per item

Basic Shipping rate plus price per item

I set up my business using ecart a while ago and I am now trying to change my shipping charges. Feeling a bit rusty and in need of help.

At present I only ship my beads with in the UK so shipping is calculated on value in cart using the ecart Shipping Object rules, if you spend x amount you pay x and so on.

However I would like to change a basic rate of £1.35 plus 50p per item (UK Shipping). In addition if they spend £25 or more shipping is free.

The next part of the changes is I would like to sell worldwide in which case the basic rate and additional rate would vary depending on the country they would like items shipped to.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The website if you want to have a look is allmarshallgems.co.uk

you would need to create a basic rate and per item rate shipping rule for each country.

the shipping country is stored in a session variable, sothis can be used to trigger which rule to apply. the basic idea behind the rules would be:

Base Rate - UK:
Triggers:
Total number of unique items in the cart is '>' '0'

AND
Based on session variable value:
If the Session variable 'eCartCheckoutForm_shipping_country' is '=' to a value of 'GB'

AND
Taxable Total For the Cart:
If the taxable total price for the cart is '<' '25'

calculation:
Flat rate of '1.35'

Per item Rate - uk
Triggers:
Total number of unique items in the cart is '>' '0'

AND
Based on session variable value:
If the Session variable 'eCartCheckoutForm_shipping_country' is '=' to a value of 'GB'

AND
Taxable Total For the Cart:
If the taxable total price for the cart is '<' '25'

calculation:
Multiple of column subtota:
Subtotal of column 'Quantity' 'times' '50' 'minus' '50'

the other rules would be the same, just changing the session variable value in the triggers and the prices to charge.
